When I insert Motion Graphics, it makes the video jumpy

I'm trying to use the lower third motion graphics simultaneously with video but when they are layered together, the video plays back jumpy. If I remove the lower 1/3 graphic, the video plays as normal. Is there anything I can do to make them fluid together?

Are you basing that simply off the preview? Or have you produced it and in the produced version it's still jumpy?

Normally, the produced version is nice and smooth. That's why I asked. And what version are you using?

Rick is correct.  I have also found that saving the project, closing and reopening Camtasia, sometimes "resolves" the jitters during preview.
